Storm P. Museum
The museum shows just how versatile the man Storm P. was and shows objects from his work as a cartoonist, painter, actor, writer and pipe collector.
Storm P. is best known as a humorist and his unique ability to make fun of the absurdity of everyday life and of man’s self indulgence. But at the museum you can also get acquainted with other sides of the versatile artist, namely the “Small, honest altarpieces” as Storm P. called them – a series of images that look ironically and critically at human follies, illusions and stupidities. Today, the skilled and thoughtful cartoonist is buried near the museum on Frederiksberg’s Old Cemetery.
The absurdity of everyday life
Storm P. was loved for his popular comic strips in Danish newspapers, where he drew typical characters from the 20s and 30s – from nouveau riche folk to beer-drinking vagrants. In Storm P.’s own modest words: “Well I’m not funny. But it is rather, the things I see that are funny “.
A productive man’s hand
Storm P. Museum is housed in Frederiksberg’s old police station on the corner of Frederiksberg Runddel and the entrance to Frederiksberg Gardens. The museum has over 50,000 drawings from the productive man’s hand, though of course it is only a selection of drawings which are exhibited.
